Lead with Joy and Watch Your Team Fly! 

Featuring Guest Speaker Rich Sheridan, CEO & Chief Storyteller, Menlo Innovations


Change is hard. To create a joyful workplace, you can't continue to lead the way you've always led. In this talk, Rich explores his own journey to joy, focusing on how he had to learn to lead in a completely different way, and by doing so, witnessed results that exceeded his wildest expectations. In his talk, Rich applies the analogy of flight to the teams we lead. His message is simple: when we finally understand the relevant principles (in flight or in teams), we can fly to heights and distances that were previously unimaginable. But to get there, you as a leader, will need to create change. Serious change. And you will need to undergo your own personal evolution as well. 

You will come away energized and inspired to start your own journey toward leading with joy tomorrow! 

 Audience members will learn how to: 

  • Take concrete steps to elevate the human energy in your organization 
  • Change how you and your team see the role of a leader 
  •  Turn your organization around to one that embraces action instead of meetings 
  •  Lead with Joy
